    A Holistic Approach to Fitness: Marrying Neuroscience and Physical Training

    The very talented, intelligent, and handsome Michael Gonzalez-Wallace has produced a book that is likely to change the entire field of physical fitness. In this immensely readable book SUPER BODY, SUPER BRAIN: THE WORKOUT THAT DOES IT ALL he has taken advantage of his experiences as an athlete in Spain, his studies in the 'science' of economics, and his communication and close relationships with neuroscientists, neurologists, psychiatrists, nutritionists and his personal achievement of becoming a Certified Professional Trainer from the National Academy of Sports Medicine and years as a personal trainer, and has designed and written the new 'bible' for physical fitness! What makes Gonzalez-Wallace's book so very different from the many other excellent fitness books is his inclusion of aspects of brain function as tied to motor function. He begins his book with a very sound explanation of the interaction of brain function with motor function and after explaining much data few of us knew he begins his exercises models, explaining how minimal work physically can simultaneously stimulate the brain to use different areas, the result being a workout for the brain that makes us more coordinated, alert, retain more memory, and master multi-tasking abilities that carry over into our daily routines. And most interesting, he shows us how that all of this body and brain conditioning can take as little time as 10 minutes per day (giving us options to increase the activity and thus the results in similar painless ways). In addition he adds to this fine book a nutritionist's plan for diet improvement that reduces body fat while building muscle and toning our entire body. There are many photographs of Gonzalez-Wallace demonstrating the various movements that are so simple to follow that the reader is tempted on first reading to put the book aside and start the exercise routine! This is a superb book that deserves a wide audience. Hopefully al fitness trainers will take the author's lead and help convert a nation of unfit and aging people into more productive happy citizens! Highly recommended for everyone. Grady Harp
